No problem!
1) sounds like a Yellowtail Dascyllus
2) probably a blue devil
3) yellow tail damsel
I like to browse this site, among others for ideas:
liveaquaria.com

It has been almost 2 weeks since I set up my tank. I have been charting my water parameters everyday. I have seen a small ammonia spike (never getting above .25ppm), the nitrItes went up to about 1.0 ppm and my nitrAtes went up to about 40ppm and have been about 20ppm for about 3-4 days now.

My readings today were:

Ammonia - 0
NitrItes - 0
NitrAtes - 20ppm
pH - 8.2
SG - 1.021

My question is this, is my cycling done? I have heard that it takes about 4-6 weeks for cycling.

It looks like your cycle might be complete. If you added cured LR, that may have provided the tank with enough beneficial bacteria to speed up the cycle. Do you have any new pics?

All of the LR was cured (it came from a friends tank)

Nice pics, you have me stumped on that fish. If it is some sort of damsel, it looks remotely simillar to a Talbot's Damsel, but that is still a little suspect. Hopefully someone will be able to help....
